Big River  Johnny Cash

(Capo 1st fret.)
INTRO: /RIFF#1. (x2)

[E]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry.
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [B]clear blue sky.
And the [E]tears that I cried for that woman are gonna
[A]flood you Big River.
Then [E]I'm gonna sit right [B]here until I [E]die.[E] [G] [E]

[E]I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota.
And it tore me up every time I heard her [B]drawl, Southern drawl.
Then I [E]heard my dream was back downstream, cav..[A]ortin' in Davenport,
and I [E]followed you, Big [B]River, when you [E]called.[E] [G] [E]
( Tab from: )

[E]Then you took me to St. Louis, later on down the river.
A freighter said she's been here but she's [B]gone, boy, she's gone.
I [E]found her trail in Memphis, but she just [A]walked up the block.
She raised a [E]few eyebrows and then she [B]went on down a[E]lone.[E] [G] [E]

[E]Now, won't you batten down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
Take that woman on down to New [B]Orleans, New Orleans.
Go [E]on, I've had enough..dump my [A]blues down in the Gulf.
She [E]loves you, Big [B]River, more than [E]me.[E] [G] [E] [E] [G] [E]
A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
